Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
Why was the city called Luz?
וַיִּקְרָ֛א אֶת־שֵֽׁם־הַמָּק֥וֹם הַה֖וּא בֵּֽית־אֵ֑ל וְאוּלָ֛ם ל֥וּז שֵׁם־הָעִ֖יר לָרִאשֹׁנָֽה׃
He named that site Bethel; but previously the name of the city had been Luz.
One of the reasons the city was named Luz was in reference to the indestructible bone in the human spine, known as the “luz bone,” from where the resurrection of the dead will take place.
No one ever died in Luz because the angel of death had no power there
